Damarri sails again after nearly nine years......

Post by PaulJ »

In 2013, when we got back from our travels, we laid the boat up with the intention of doing a bit of work on her and then selling her. Due to a number of circumstances and "life" getting in the way, she has been out of the water far longer than we ever intended but this year, much to the detriment of my modelling, I have made it a priority to get Damarri back in the water.......

And today was our first day out which happened to coincide with this year's Pinmill Barge match! The weather was perfect, there were (I think) nine barges, all looking magnificent under full sail......

I think a good day was had by all and I imagine some pretty good model flying got done as well! :P
